No, I didn't. I talked about Vobsub (don't know what kind of subtitle is), and convert to sup (again don't know if text or graphic) and mux with Ifoedit. I just used once srt, to feed to DVDlab Pro. I knew I didn't explain myself well .

... and looked great in the preview, and can choose between bitmap and vector modes,... I'll try it again .

Thank you anyway for your help.

I know but this was the begining of the thread !

But when you asked me :
Quote:
If I manage to make Ifoedit way work, why do you think it should be the very last option?. Is it for being a too much time consuming?.
you were quoting my sentence that I started by :
Quote:
If you are starting from a srt file...
But you cut off the begining and just quoted the end of the sentence ! For sure that meanings is not the same if you read only the last part.

You can use the script without thinking... if you have perl installed on your PC
If I use perl it is to not have to wonder with compiling .

Well Phil, I know that you know I didn't want to manipulate what you said. Just wanted to select those parts I thought esential to go on the conversation, and make it easily readable.

Some advanced questions on perl (hope you will know the answer):
- how do I know if I have perl installed? (running Windows XP Pro)
- with which extension am I supposed to be saving the script, to be run?
You see, high knowledge here

If you don't mind, as the subject of this thread is clear, I'll open a new thread to post my problems with sup files... (you already know that!)

And to answer your second question : a perl script must have a ".pl" extension (this way it will be linked automatically to ActivePerl).

Put the script in the same directory than the idx file. Open a dos window, go to the directory, and type "nameofthescript.pl nameoftheidx.idx"

Thanx to both.

Phil, still didn't install ActivePerl. Maybe when I do it I'll find the answer, but...
what's the idx file?

Yes, I know.

It's just I thought you where still talking about ActivePerl in general, and not related to the problem of subtosup.
I see now you were explaining me how to use your script to fix the idx file and convert all vob ID to VOB ID 1, isn't it?.

Thanx again.

Thanx a lot Dialhot
Dowloading it right now.

I didn't update this thread for a long time. I'm using now the graphic subtitle way, and converting them inside DVDlab Pro.
Works OK. But till now, I wasn't able to make the DVD at a time. I mean: I have to make vobs for each film with DVDlab, and then import them in a new DVDlab project. It works. If not, it crashes.
